A cleft lip is an opening or split in the upper lip that occurs when developing facial structures in the fetus do not close completely. A cleft palate is an opening or split in the roof of the mouth that occurs when the tissue doesn' t fuse together during development in the womb. At Mission Smile, we ensure the safest care through free cleft lip and cleft palate treatment in India for the poorest of the poor.
